First finish of 2014
I spent a couple of hours yesterday afternoon working on the stocking but in the evening I made a start on this sweet little stitch which Isabella, owner of Primitive Hare kindly put on her blog as a freebie. I managed to get two thirds of it stitched last night and finished stitching it today. I’m just going to make it up as a small pillow. It was stitched on some lovely hand dyed fabric I purchased last year from The Crafty Kitten. The colour is Bramble Liquer and it is a 16 count aida and I’ve only used a quarter of the piece I had. I’ve got several 9 x 12 pieces from the Crafty Kitten which I will probably use for small stitched pieces. It is my intention to try and get one small piece stitched and finished each month. I’ve acquired a few freebie charts from designers who have been kind enough to put them on their blogs so I have plenty to keep me going for quite a few months.
Also today I have picked up one of the outstanding WIP’s – this was the landscape picture from Yiota’s which I was lucky enough to be given some time ago to review. This is what it looked like when I picked it up today. Updates will be given later in the week.
We’ve had hailstorms this afternoon and it has turned quite a bit colder. I managed to time Max’s walks just right today and so far I’ve managed to avoid getting wet. Roll on Spring!
